Just days after rediscovering his love for soccer and putting his professional career back in motion, Freddy Adu has popped up in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Adu is a trialist with USL expansion club the Las Vegas Lights.
Adu has no contract as a trialist, and the club has not yet acknowledged that Adu is there, but this could be a good landing spot for the former phenom, who signed his first professional contract at age 16 with DC United and since then has seen himself become a journeyman.
Adu last played for the Tampa Bay Rowdies (formerly of the NASL and now in the USL) in 2016, before taking a year off from soccer.
We will just have to wait and see if he earns himself a contract or if the Las Vegas Lights (clears throat while putting on sunglasses, ignores impassioned pleas from friends and family members and The18's Connor Fleming — who has to edit this piece — not to make this joke) BID FREDDY ADIEU.
